In 1988, Florence Kahn opened her jewish delicatessen in Paris. Thankfully for lovers of Yiddish cuisine, who cannot make it all the way to Paris, she has chosen to share the centuries-old recipies with us, in this delightful traditional cookbook.

Just like religious festivals, songs, or humor, cuisine is a constitutive part of the Jewish tradition. In this book, Parisian delicatessen-owner Florence Kahn shares with us century-old Yiddish recipes that not only feed the hungry, but also delight the soul. Classics of Jewish cuisine, including meals for religious holidays, are explained step-by-step and illustrated by mouth-watering photographs. Florence Kahn's easy-to-follow recipes unite the best of Yiddish traditions with a contemporary approach and show the diversity of Jewish cooking. The author's tips on recipes variations and her explanations about the origins of dishes are a great addition to the contents.

Florence Kahn invites us to turn the pages of this book and discover the Rue des Rosiers - its soul, her store, and last but not least the enchanting wonders of Jewish gastronomy.
